Muse, I tend to agree with you; the Chrysler building by any other name would still be as beautiful, BUT...Do we REALLY need to confuse the poor tourists?

I think Chrysler's name is especially significant, since Walter Chrysler played the role of a patron, and helped by his sheer determination and enthusiasm to bring her into being as she is...

What's your source for that information?

I don't think that NYers and Chicagoans will like the name changes either.

Google it. You'll find plenty of sources as it is common knowledge.
